Changing your default browser in Windows 11 has just become simple.
Just follow these instructions.

Your Phone App is now Phone Link


To make the change open the Your Phone App and select update
to do the conversion to the Phone Link App
It's the same app just updated to the Windows 11 feel and look.
Here's what Microsoft had to say in it's description:

"We carefully updated our controls, color palette,
and overall look and feel to deliver a native app experience
on the new Windows 11 OS. 
New app design changes include rounded corners, fresh illustrations
and updated iconography."

Microsoft reveals new Windows 11 File Explorer, Focus features
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-reveals-new-windows-11-file-explorer-focus-features/
This talks about possible features that may appear sometime toward the end of this year.
None of these features are even available in the preview builds at this time.
Another Headline that seek attention but reveal nothing useful.

New in Edge - Web select lets you easily capture text, images or tables and past it into another place like here or a word document, etc.

Right click on the website, select (highlight) what you want to copy and paste it into the receiving place as I did
with this graph. (Short cut keys Ctrl + Shift + X)
Edge seems to keep introducing more useful tools all the time.
I just copied this from a prior post in this thread.

Windows 11 is getting a nifty macOS feature – Quick View
Read more about it here: https://bit.ly/3JDJKhY
I'm still waiting for it to arrive and I'm running the latest preview build of Windows 11.

If this interests you as it did me, what is available right now is an app
from the Windows Play Store called QuickLook
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/quicklook/9nv4bs3l1h4s?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
This works on Windows 10 (not 10S) and Windows 11
To learn more, take a look at the video I produced.
A quick look at QuickLook

This computer which never should have updated to windows 11 many month ago
when I was waiting for the Beta release of Windows 10 21H2 is now refusing
to update to the next release of Windows 11 Preview Build 22598.1
It freezes during the updating process and eventually after a cold start returns
to the build listed in the screenshot.
I did not force the upgrade to 11. It's something Microsoft decided to do on it's
own. This computer was receiving preview builds of Windows 10.
I'm hoping someone has an answer why it is now not updating to the next version
before I downgrade this computer back to Windows 10.

Microsoft disables SMB1 by default for Windows 11 Home Insiders
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-disables-smb1-by-default-for-windows-11-home-insiders/
Considering the fact that SMB1 really isn't used by most windows users,
This really has no effect on the average Windows user.

It might not be used by many averages users, but it is still installed and could be exploited.

Since Windows 10 version 1709 and Windows Server version 1709, SMBv1 is no longer installed in the operating system by default. Newer versions of the Windows operating systems are using SMBv3.

If you're still running an older unsafe system you probably don't care about the safety aspect. If you do, the following article gives instructions on disabling SMBv1

Windows 11 - File Explorer - Compact View

Less wasted space and more usable information and files available for access
just by enabling compact view.

You may want to read this - Microsoft Doc - worth a check.

I did and I checked as suggested and SMB1 is still present (see image 1) I have now removed it (just about to reboot).

I have the latest win10 version (image 2) and patch Tuesday updates.  So it certainly wasn't removed.
